Cleaning & Odor Control

Pre-Inspection & Dye Stability Testing

In addition to assessing the overall condition of each rug during the pre-inspection examination, we are checking every rug for any structural damage, pet stains, and signs of moth damage. We also test for dye stability, especially if we spot evidence of any water damage, pet urine, or if we see any visible dye bleed. This crucial step allows us to do two important things: It opens up an informative dialogue regarding what each individual rug needs, and it sets us up for success on the wash floor!

Dusting & Dry Soil Removal

Prior to cleaning, we spend a lot of time focusing on removing the gritty, particulate soils and pet hairs that regular vacuuming will often leave behind. Because every rug is constructed differently, our dry soil removal methods are designed to match the needs of each individual rug. Even if it’s not time to have your rugs cleaned yet, we recommend this step as an annual service to help the overall health of the rugs in your home, and to extend the life of your rugs.

What Is A Rug Badger? (Photo)

The Rug Badger is just one of the tools that we use to remove dust and dry soil from our clients’ rugs. Specifically designed for area rugs, the Rug Badger uses the power of over 40,000 harmonic vibrations/min, the to separate heavy sediments and dirt from area rugs.

Rug Washing

One World Rug Care refuses to use automated wash systems or huge tub washing equipment. While those large machines are cool to see in action, it is our deep belief that they often cause more harm than good. They expose your rugs to harsh chemicals that are used to reduce contaminants, pet urine, and loose dyes that exist in the water, and ignore the real science and art behind rug washing. We never want to be in a position where we have to justify the purchase price of such huge equipment by treating your rugs in an unsafe manner.

More Info

We are able to eliminate all of those risks by taking the time to care for your rugs the right way – one at a time with clean, cool water, and green solutions that are safe for your rugs, your home, and the environment. Because we clean with a flexible and customized “best method practice” for every rug, the procedures we use fit the unique nature and condition of each rug instead of trying to make the needs of your rug fit into an automated wash system. In fact, we utilize seven of the safest cleaning methods in the industry to ensure that each individual rug is treated properly.

Pet Odor & Pet Urine Odor Removal

Rugs with pet odors can become a real source of embarrassment. Bacteria from occasional pet accidents and the oily residues from their fur can not be vacuumed away. When our suggested odor removal protocols are followed, we will fully guarantee the pet odor and pet urine odor removal. Exclusions to this guarantee include most tufted rugs and rugs that have been deemed so badly urine damaged that the structural integrity of the rug has been compromised.

Protection & Prevention

Rug Padding

One World Rug Care carries the best eco-friendly rug padding available! It’s made to last longer than typical rug pads, is made from recycled materials, and has been named a Green Label product by the Carpet & Rug Institute. If your current rug pads are 3-5 years old or more, it’s time to replace them with our eco-friendly rug pad.

Fiber Protection

One World Rug Care can apply a water-based fiber protector to the fibers of your rug which will do an excellent job of allowing a spill to remain on the surface of the fibers for a limited window of time (10-15 minutes) to allow for spill or spot removal. The added benefit of this protector is enhanced soil removal during vacuuming. Our fiber protector should be re-applied to your rugs after each cleaning, or after your rug has endured a year or two of foot traffic.

Rug Wrapping

Our professional rug wrapping service has you covered! We provide several wrapping options for long term storage, short term storage, transport, or shipping. Just let us know what your unique situation is, and we’ll suggest a solution that works.

Moth Treatment

Our environmentally friendly moth treatment uses a blend of three different essential oils, UV light from the sun, and a deep freeze treatment. Once your rugs have been treated for moths and washed, our repair team will inspect for any moth damage and will contact you with a repair estimate. Before your rugs are returned to you, we will apply a preventative moth treatment.

Custom-made Rug Hangers

Some rugs were never meant to be used on the floor, and older rugs may now be retired to a safe space on the wall. Our custom-made hanging racks preserve the unique shape of your rug, provide uniform pressure across the entire textile to prevent weight stress, and our service includes professional mounting on your wall.

Rug & Fringe Repair

Rug Repair & Restoration

We use authentic wool yarns from around the world.



Dye Migration Removal & Over-Dyeing

Rugs with dye damage caused by pet urine or water damage need to be specially treated with color removers and reducing agents to achieve even slight improvement in the affected area. This type of color correction is more an “art” than a “science” and the results cannot be guaranteed We are able to provide a free estimate once we have seen the damage.

Fringe Repair & Replacement

Because rug fringes lay out flat, they are susceptible to wear and erosion. Fringes are also often cleaned improperly with bleach or oxidizing treatments in an attempt to whiten them. One World Rug Care will never use harsh chemicals on your fringes! Our skilled repair team can re-weave or replace damaged fringe, which will protect the ends of your rugs and keep them looking newer longer.

Binding and Serging

What Our Clients are Saying

One World Rug Care cleaned 4 rugs for us, including one that needed some repair. The rugs are beautiful and look better than ever after One World work. It was a pleasure to have Salhal, Maurice and their colleagues in our home. The work was done on time, including pick up and delivery. Exceptionally high quality at a very reasonable price. We enthusiastically recommend them for whatever rug care is needed.

Michael is amazingly knowledgeable about the history and art of weaving rugs. His knowledge goes well beyond local rug manufacturing. We consulted him about cleaning some of the Persian rugs we have, and was surprised he was able to recognize the area in Iran that rugs were woven; he talked in details about the designs of those regions. He has a passion for rugs, its art, design, and historical evolution; he does not see rugs as a mere profession.
We were pleased to find him for evaluation and servicing our rugs.

~Naser M.


Michael is as knowledgeable, skilled, and professional as they come. He uses old world techniques that preserve the authenticity and composition of your rug. This is hands down THE BEST company around for any antique, heirloom, or just plain nice rugs that you own.
